Three great wins for us at the prestigious UK Bus Awards
Arriva London collected three prestigious awards at the UK Bus Awards held at the historic Troxy cinema venue in Limehouse, East London.
The first was the top prize Gold Award in the TfL London Bus Garage of the Year category, which was won by Brixton garage in South London.
The award required entrants to reach high levels of recorded performance in a range of disciplines, including service reliability, engineering standards, driver quality monitoring, wheelchair ramp operation, customer satisfaction and mystery traveller surveys.
The second of our Gold Awards went to Tottenham garage’s engineering manager Chris Leonti, in the Unsung Heroes category.
It recognised that, for over 40 years, Chris has tirelessly maintained and managed London's buses to ensure its travelling public receives the best customer experience, and that he is renowned for his positive attitude amongst his colleagues across Arriva London. His self-motivation and will to succeed has made him the 'go-to' man for advice on all bus engineering matters and underlines his truly Unsung Hero status.
Our third winner was our Enfield driver Helen Webster, who captured the Silver Award in the Top London Bus Driver category.
The London Bus Driver awards are given to those individuals who best fit the customers' ideal: a driver who is friendly, helpful, conscientious, mindful of passengers’ comfort and wellbeing – in short, a true professional and worthy ambassador for the job.
Bob Scowen, Arriva London Managing Director, said:
"The award winners are recognition for all of our staff and the quality of service provided every day across our London business. We should all be proud of the awards and see them as an inspiration for the challenges we face going forward."

The 2015 celebration of International Women’s Day has prompted Arriva London to talk to some of its female staff, and see how things have changed since their time with the company.
Transport for London (TfL) has announced that Arriva has been awarded the contract to operate route 312, which will become the first route in London to be operated entirely by electric buses.
To start the year in a positive way and finish off the celebrations for the Year of the Bus, Arriva London’s Heritage Fleet RMC 1464 ‘The Open Topper’ was invited to join the New Year’s Day celebration parade through the streets of London.
The new 2015 calendar is now available to download.
The initiative by Transport for London (TfL), Arriva London and UK bus manufacturer Optare saw two of the latest electric buses introduced to the capital’s fleet.
Here are the running schedules for the festive season.
